Detailed Description

Base class for converter factories.

The ConverterFactoryBase class is the base of all specializations of the ConverterFactory class template. It implements the factory registration, maintains a registry of factories, and provides access to the registered factories.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ ConverterFactoryBase()

libcamera::ConverterFactoryBase::ConverterFactoryBase ( const std::string  name,
std::initializer_list< std::string >  compatibles 

Construct a converter factory base.

[in]nameName of the converter class
[in]compatiblesName aliases of the converter class

Creating an instance of the factory base registers it with the global list of factories, accessible through the factories() function.

The factory name is used as unique identifier. If the converter implementation fully relies on a generic framework, the name should be the same as the framework. Otherwise, if the implementation is specialized, the factory name should match the driver name implementing the function.

The factory compatibles holds a list of driver names implementing a generic subsystem without any personalizations.

◆ compatibles()

libcamera::ConverterFactoryBase::compatibles ( ) const
The list of compatible name aliases of the converter

◆ create()

std::unique_ptr< Converter > libcamera::ConverterFactoryBase::create ( MediaDevice media)

Create an instance of the converter corresponding to the media device.

[in]mediaThe media device to create the converter for

The converter is created by matching the factory name or any of its compatible aliases with the media device driver name.

A new instance of the converter subclass corresponding to the media device, or null if the media device driver name doesn't match anything

◆ factories()

std::vector< ConverterFactoryBase * > & libcamera::ConverterFactoryBase::factories ( )

Retrieve the list of all converter factories.

The list of converter factories

◆ names()

std::vector< std::string > libcamera::ConverterFactoryBase::names ( )

Retrieve the list of all converter factory names.

The list of all converter factory names
